The Fully Charged Guide to Electric Vehicles & Clean Energy

The Fully Charged Guide to Electric Vehicles & Clean Energy

Author: Robert Llewellyn Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/01/2020

Did you know that the carbon impact of producing ten cheeseburgers is the same as one passenger travelling 167 miles on a London bus? Or that high levels of air pollution lead to over 40,000 premature deaths and 6 million sick days each year? But maybe the future isn't as bleak as it seems. What if we told you that by turning down your thermostat by one degree, you could save 320 kg of carbon dioxide annually? And that renewables are already generating a sizeable amount of energy around the world each year? In The Fully Charged Guide to Electric Vehicles & Clean Energy, experts from around the globe explore how sustainable technology - everything from solar panels to wind turbines and electric vehicles - is getting cheaper, more effective and more available, and how by making everyday changes, we could see the `big switch' in the coming decade. Presenting the latest innovations in the renewable energy and automotive industries, this book busts myths, provides suggestions and solutions for how to go green, explores how countries around the world are already improving the quality of life of their residents, and looks at where clean energy will take us next.

Some Old Bloke Recollections, Obsessions and the Joys of Blokedom

Some Old Bloke Recollections, Obsessions and the Joys of Blokedom

Author: Robert Llewellyn Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/11/2018

For the last several years, the writer, comedian and Red Dwarf actor Robert Llewellyn has been gathering notes, old diaries, pictures and ideas for a lighthearted but occasionally philosophical book on his life. And a couple of years ago, after Christmas dinner, his son scrawled a picture of him that he titled `Some Old Bloke , which struck Robert as the perfect title for this funny, revealing and insightful autobiography. We take a meandering route through Robert's life and career, from the sensitive young boy at odds with his ex-military father, through his stint as a hippy and his years of arrested development spent in the world of fringe comedy, all the way up to the full-body medicals and hard-won insights of middle age. Whether he is waxing lyrical about fresh laundry, making an impassioned case for the importance of alternative energy or recounting a detailed history of the dogs in his life, Robert presents a refreshingly open and un-cynical look at the world at large and, of course, the joys of being a bloke.

When writer, comedian and Red Dwarf actor Robert Llewellyn's son scrawled a picture of him at Christmas and titled it 'Some Old Bloke', Robert was cast deep into thought about life and what it means to be a bloke - and an old one at that. In this lighthearted, revealing and occasionally philosophical autobiography, we take a meandering route through Robert's life and career: from the sensitive young boy at odds with his ex-military father, through his stint as a hippy and his years of arrested development in the world of fringe comedy, all the way up to the full-body medicals and hard-earned insights of middle age. Whether he is waxing lyrical about fresh laundry, making an impassioned case for the importance of alternative energy or recounting a detailed history of the dogs in his life, Robert presents a refreshingly open and un-cynical look at the world at large and, of course, the joys of being a bloke.

The Living Forest A Journey Into Nature's Most Intricate Habitat

The Living Forest A Journey Into Nature's Most Intricate Habitat

Author: Robert Llewellyn, Joan Maloof Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/09/2017

From the leaves and branches of the canopy to the roots and soil of the understory, the forest is a complex, interconnected ecosystem filled with plants, birds, mammals, insects, and fungi. Some of it is easily discovered, but many parts remain difficult or impossible for the human eye to see. Until now. The Living Forest is a visual journey that immerses you deep into the woods. The wide- ranging photography by Robert Llewellyn celebrates the small and the large, the living and the dead, and the seen and the unseen. You'll discover close-up images of owls, hawks, and turtles; aerial photographs that show herons in flight; and time-lapse imagery that reveals the slow change of leaves. In an ideal blend of art and scholarship, the 300 awe-inspiring photographs are supported by lyrical essays from Joan Maloof detailing the science behind the wonder.

Author: Robert Llewellyn Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/09/2013

When Gavin Meckler's light aircraft encounters a mysterious cloud and crashes to earth, he discovers that the eerily quiet landscape in which he has landed is 200 years older than the one from which he took off. In this gentle, peaceful, sustainable new world, it is possible to travel from one side of the globe to the other in a matter of minutes without burning fuel, and everyone is a gardener because that's how they can be sure to eat. Inspired by William Morris's utopian novel News from Nowhere, Robert Llewellyn shows us a future where we don't burn anything to make anything else and which isn't hovering on the brink of disaster; where aliens haven't invaded, meteors haven't hit and zombies haven't taken over. In short, a world where humanity eventually gets it right. All the technology described in the novel has seen the light of day in reality. Llewellyn's future isn't perfect and may not be very likely, but it is entirely possible.

The Man In The Rubber Mask The Inside Smegging Story of Red Dwarf

The Man In The Rubber Mask The Inside Smegging Story of Red Dwarf

Author: Robert Llewellyn Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/05/2013

It was 1989 when Robert Llewellyn first had his head encased in the one-piece latex foam-rubber balaclava that is the head of Kryten in Red Dwarf series three, and it gave him a distinctly funny turn. Gazing at his own reflection and seeing the face of a mechanoid robot staring back was surprisingly scary, not to mention uncomfortable and rather sweaty. And he couldn't even eat his lunch. Since then, he has sweated, frozen, been set on fire, exploded, spent thousands of hours in the make-up chair and thousands more being taunted by Craig Charles for being a middle-class b*****d. So it is a testament to the joyful camaraderie and life-enhancing silliness of the world of Red Dwarf that twenty-three years later, Robert is still willing to risk life, limb and hairline to don the rubber torture helmet for Red Dwarf X, the recent triumphant return of the motley band of space bums. Originally published in 1993 after series six, The Man in the Rubber Mask has now been completely updated with 43.7% extra smeg.
